Renaissance Austin Hotel

Austin, Texas

Virgin rating

The hotel

When you first think of Austin, you think of the eclectic live-music scene no doubt, and you’re not wrong. However, if you’re looking for a more relaxed vibe then the Renaissance Austin is an ideal way to explore the cultivated side of the city, with countryside views from your room and an extra bit of peace whilst still being within easy reach of the city centre. Located next to the Arboretum, an upmarket outdoor shopping mall with plenty of restaurants and events on offer, you’ll be able to grab a few bargains without having to worry about carrying your bags miles back to the hotel! The hotel itself features both an outdoor and indoor pool, catering for visits all year round. And if those steps around the mall aren’t enough, the Peloton room is on hand to blow off some steam before you head to the Knotty Deck & Bar to relax on the outdoor patio with a hand crafted cocktail and farm-to-table Texan cuisine.

We had a great shuttle ride from our hotel to TopGolf. The van was nice and cool. Iwest was professional and fun! He made sure everyone was ready to go. He arrived promptly to pick us up. Would highly recommend to a friend!

Iwest helped me and my sister with our luggage and was a very friendly young man. He was the first person we came across and always had a smile on his face. Thank you for all of your assistance I look forward to returning.

Our stay here was awesome! All the staff is super attentive and friendly. My daughter and I really enjoyed the nice patio, super nice early in the morning and in the evening. The indoor and outdoor pool were great as well. Also a special thank you to Mr.Iwest who really went out of his way to accommodate us, very nice gentleman!
